Speaking Topics for Women’s Events

First Fruits – How often do we give God our leftovers and wonder why He’s not blessing us? Sharon challenges women to stop settling for mediocrity and instead commit to giving God nothing less than first fruits.

Adam’s Rib and a Pillar of Salt – A fun and entertaining look at the roles of women in the Bible and how we can find our own place in the modern world.

It Only Takes a Spark – Throughout history women have made amazing contributions. Receive inspiration and encouragement as we talk about humble women who have gone on to achieve greatness.

Embracing Our Femininity – It’s ok to be a woman. In fact, God can use us in unique ways.  Let’s get excited about all that we  can do to impact our world.

(Note: The above sessions can be combined for a What About the Women? weekend retreat.)

Lottie Moon – An in depth look at the woman behind the offering. Discover why this 4’3″ turn of the century woman is still relevant to today’s church.

Isabella Alden – The woman who encouraged Grace Livingston Hill to write, Isabella Alden (pen name Pansy) wrote over 100 novels, many of them based on her personal experiences as a pastor’s wife.

Women’s Night Out Movie Events

Women’s Night Out Movie Events combine one of Sharon’s movies with a talk tailored specifically for your group.

Actress Stacey Bradshaw and Actor Josh Allen in ProvidenceProvidence – Love needs no words in this silent love story about a couple who meet as children, but it takes forty years for their friendship to blossom into a romance. Talks can focus on waiting for God’s timing, finding God’s love in the midst of tragedy, or the power of persistent prayers.

The Good Book – A Bible is passed along to strangers impacting the lives of seven of those individuals. Talks can focus on evangelism, trusting God through trials, or seeing others through God’s eyes.

Flowers for Fannie – A young woman befriends a lonely, bitter old woman and forms an unlikely friendship. Talks can focus on loving the unlovely, trusting God, or embracing intergenerational friendships.

Speaking Topics for Writer’s Conferences

Screenwriting 101– An introduction to the art and technique of writing for film.

Turning Your Book Into a Screenplay – You’ve got this great book, but now how do you translate it to show well on the big screen? Learn the differences between storytelling for books and storytelling for film. Discover the fun of showing a story and see how that can help in the telling of a story.

Speaking Topics for Film Events

Visual Storytelling – After writing and directing two silent feature films, Sharon learned how to tell a story without using a line of dialogue and applies  that knowledge to a traditional movie. Once you master visual storytelling, your scrips will take on a whole new level.

How to Give Your Microbudget Movie a Million Dollar Look – Sharon teaches how to use casting, costumes, composition, and creativity to give your low budget movie a Hollywood look.
